WEBINAR: KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-kbase-a-knowledge-base-for-systems-biology-653d9753-989d-4194-9230-6e2d90652955 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology’. This webinar took place on 22 September 2021. Event description  Developed for bench biologists and bioinformaticians, The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a free, open source, software and data science platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and designing biological function. This webinar will provide an overview of the KBase mission and user community, as well as a tour of the online platform and basic functionality. You’ll learn how KBase can support your research: Upload data, run analysis tools (Apps), share your analysis with collaborators, and publish your data and reproducible workflows. We’ll highlight a brand new feature that enables users to link environment and measurement data to sequencing data. You’ll also find out how KBase supports findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) research by providing open, reproducible, shareable bioinformatics workflows. Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

WORKSHOP: R: fundamental skills for biologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-r-fundamental-skills-for-biologists-81aa00db-63ad-4962-a7ac-b885bf9f676b This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘R: fundamental skills for biologists’. This workshop took place over four, three-hour sessions on 1, 8, 15 and 22 June 2022.   Event description Biologists need data analysis skills to be able to interpret, visualise and communicate their research results. While Excel can cover some data analysis needs, there is a better choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.  R is a free, open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis, visualisation and more. The large variety of R packages available for analysing biological data make it a robust and flexible option for data of all shapes and sizes.  Getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics and programming. In this workshop we will equip you with the foundations for getting the most out of R and RStudio, an interactive way of structuring and keeping track of your work in R. Using biological data from a model of influenza infection, you will learn how to efficiently and reproducibly organise, read, wrangle, analyse, visualise and generate reports from your data in R. Topics covered in this workshop include: Spreadsheets, organising data and first steps with R Manipulating and analysing data with dplyr Data visualisation Summarized experiments and getting started with Bioconductor   This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Saskia Freytag from WEHI  with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative. Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

Skills training & materials - developing sharing guidelines and agreements

Anyone who has developed training content - specifically hands-on, short format, data science training - will know that it is expensive and time consuming. As a rule of thumb, one can expect to spend 15-20 hours of development time per hour of delivery time.

As a rule of thumb, one can expect to spend 15-20 hours of development time per hour of delivery time. Even once the main work is done, there are still ongoing maintenance demands, from correcting the inevitable typos and adapting to software version updates, to major rewrites as best practice techniques evolve. Few Australians training organisations have a funding mandate for developing training material for general use. Instead most of us build training for our own communities in response to demand from those communities, allocating our limited resources to the areas of perceived highest demand. Notwithstanding this local focus, most training organisations operate in similar research environments with similar community demands, so there are real opportunities for benefit from collaboration between those organisations. In this session we will discuss how such collaboration could occur and whether a standardised national agreement around sharing of training material is an achievable outcome. This session will not discuss co-delivery opportunities, institution-specific content such as HPC training and data management, or consolidation of existing similar workshops into a single course. These are important topics, but we don’t have time to do them justice today. contact@ardc.edu.au training material, training, sharing guidelines, sharing agreements
